    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years

      Who would you get beyond the main man though?

      1. Amey

      3. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Castagne or Pereira (GW10 too early maybe?) come to mind.

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Anthony Taylor gives a Penalty

    3. Amey
      • 2 Years

      It's funny you didn't mention the worst Defense they're about to face this GW 😆

    4. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          I’ve got the free transfers available but I’m still not sure. I know our defence is in tatters but still.

  4. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Sterling or Bruno?

    I have KDB if you feel that impacts it

    1. Nespinha
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Bruno easy

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        +3

    2. abhirup780
      • 6 Years

      Sterling.

  5. Stram Dunk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 7 days ago

    Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Alex Telles and Victor Lindelof were among those reporting to the AON Complex for training.
    But Harry Maguire (foot) and Edinson Cavani, along with Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly were missing.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Presumably Cavani was missing as he was travelling back from International duty

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Awesome
      Thanks

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      I would have thought Greenwood would be with his lawyers still drawing up the libel case against Rupert.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Murdoch?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Someone far more powerful.

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Yeah me too.

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Top man. Thank you.

    4. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      No Fernandes? Hopefully being taken off at ht was just tactical

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Oh f.... he's in the car

    5. No Professionals
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      is Rashford grimacing as he presses the pedal?

  6. Bennyboy1907
      2 months, 7 days ago

      current team : 2FT’s 1.1ITB

      Martinez (Forster)
      Robbo Chillwell Lamptey (Saiss, Mitchell)
      Salah Son Zaha Grealish (Bisouma)
      Kane Bamford DCL

      Son and Salah >>> KDB and Bruno

      Yay or nay

    • Nespinha
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Fill in the two spots (only 3 play):

      Bellerin / KWP / ____ / ____ / Mitchel

      A) Cancelo + Coufal
      B) Cresswell + Lamptey

      Why did you choose XX option?

      1. jomikijiq
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        A, because Cancelo is the best DEF pick in the game right now

        but Mausaku is much better than Coufal

        1. Make ManeMane Make ManeMane
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Agree ^

        2. Nespinha
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Cancelo is not 100% nailed..

    • VinMar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      is Fofana a safer long term pick over justin on wc?

      1. Stram Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Castagne for me

        1. VinMar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          only have 5.0

    • Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 7 days ago

      Where does Fofana play, LCB?

    • Corona is not good 4 U
        2 months, 7 days ago

        Salah -> KdB for free makes sense? Have Bruno. Thank you!

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          For free? Yes indeed.

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Yes. Also JRod could be a great move

      • FootballDog
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 7 days ago

        could someone plz explain this:

        salah only going to missing this game week? or next one as well ?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            1. FootballDog
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              this is wat thought as well

        3. Ronny Sandstone
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          is Telles worth bringing in?
          Need to bring in a defender this week (replacing Shaw whos defiantly out) - still have WC in tact so I can always get shot of him in the not so distant future if it goes pear shaped, on paper fixture looks good and a bit of a differential, I'd also like Cancelo but dont like his fixture this week and still undecided if I'll go heavy on city attackers instead.

          cheers.

          1. ElChapo
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            5.5 is a big outlay for a defender with so many question marks.

            1. Ronny Sandstone
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              True hmmm? I kind of like the idea that others might not go for him for that reason, is easy downgrade also I guess? already have Chillwell and the other usual template defenders, I'll sleep on it one more night!

        4. Olson
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 7 days ago

          Flags disappearing one by one. Not v confident but would love it if Wilson gets unflagged this week. -83% on fpl stats. He has been a hokey cokey all season for managers despite there being v little to choose between the 4 best budgets.

          1. bigwig
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 7 days ago

            I read that Wilson's injury was minor, if he trains he'll be in contention. Bruce might not risk it if though unless he trains fully. Yeah weird that he dropping considering his points tally thus far

            1. Olson
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 7 days ago

              Not only that, but of the budget players, I think that Newcastle are furthest from their ceiling. Not that it's THAT high, but it's further away than Villa, Leeds or Everton who are moreorless at max imo

              Goal involvements

              Wilson 80% (eighty!!!)
              DCL: 65%
              BamBam: 55%
              Watkins: 38%

              Wilson can survive the lean times as a talisman, can the others?

          Jimenez DCL Watkins

        7. Captain_Shirokov

          Martinez
          Chilwell, Dias, KWP
          KDB, Bruno(c), Ziyech, Grealish(vc)
          Kane, DCL, Maupay

          1.1m in the bank to play around with, anything worth a hit?

          1. BigKeith

              Mendy> a) Barnes b) Jota c) Bowen/Fornals

              or

              Salah> d) Sterling e) De Bruyne f) Bruno

              What would you guys go with?

                  Id rather keep Jota and sell Bamford if needed.

                  Zaha to Utd mid (Bruno or Rash) or Sterling (by selling Bamford) to attack the fixtures

              I suppose it’s fine to bench Soucek vs SHU (A) but it gives me a bad feeling.

              Cant bench any of the other 7 tho can I?

              Mitchell vs PVA

              RH: "Tyrick was doing extremely well. The only reason he came out was he was injured and that opened the spot for PVA.

              He got his chance against Leeds and played extremely well and it's a nice position to be in.

              We'll have to see how things pan out. There's no reason for me to be labelling them 1 and 2."

                holding Mitchell even on a WC, just to see how it plays out.

                "It's not a dilemma when you've got two good players.

                Sometimes you learn things from those periods when you don't have the players, but now it's quite the opposite. Gone from a paucity to an embarrassment of riches.

                There are choices to make and players to disappoint because unfortunately they can't all play."

                  I really dont see how PVA can be benched if fit, besides Zaha he is Palace's talisman player

                PVA is playing for Crystal Palace. A team that hasn't been defending (-12) or attacking (+12) well. He's 5.4ml. He's not 100% nailed, though you would expect him to play. He's always been an injury risk

                Can't fathom how he is anything but a nostalgia pick for a player that never really did it in the first place

                Cancelo will be rotated more, but would still pick him.

                I'm going with both on WC tho.

                  yeah it's really up to how you view fpl

                  if you're happy to go with the player with a better chance of attacking returns and are ok with the occasional bencing, Cancelo is the pick

                  if it's security of starts you're after (which I prefer over xmas for a defender), Dias is the pick

              Are people really selling the most explosive, most underpriced player in the game?

                  I suppose youre talking abt Kane?

                  Then yes.

                    If youre talking abt Son, I will prob keep one more week.

                      If he demolishes city no one will sell. I'm hoping for a single goal in a misleadingly poor performance that makes people sell him

                        Well tbh he has looked very poor in his last 2 or 3 games.

                        If he seems on fire I will indeed think twice before selling. Currently my mind seems made up - Im selling next week for KDB.

                  He's a hot and cold player and he's very cold at the moment

                      Ah ok. I sort of like the extremely short term punt. I’m just glad I have 2 FTS

                  Is Creswell worth the 0.6 over Coufal? Money isn’t that much of an issue

                  Do you think Vardy + Cresswell can outscore Maupay + Robertson by 8 points this week?

                  If not this week, surely they will in the medium term
